Description
 
In Amer. politics the ability to lie convincingly has come to be considered an almost prima facie qualification for holding high office. This book reopens the debate about presidential lies by examining their lasting consequences. It is a detailed exam. of 4 key key presidential lies: Franklin Roosevelt & the Yalta accords; John Kennedy & the Cuban Missile Crisis; Lyndon Johnson & the second Gulf of Tonkin incident; & Ronald Reagan & Central Amer. in the 1980s. In each case, the president told a clear & unambiguous falsehood to the country & to Congress regarding a crucial question of war & peace. Alterman focuses on the real-life consequences of the lies, in terms of both the policies the presidents pursued & the debased discourse they inspired.
